 package com.fasterxml.jackson.annotation;

Enumeration used to define kinds of elements (called "property accessors") that annotations like JsonAutoDetect apply to.

In addition to method types (GETTER/IS_GETTER, SETTER, CREATOR) and the field type (FIELD), 2 pseudo-types are defined for convenience: ALWAYS and NONE. These can be used to indicate, all or none of available method types (respectively), for use by annotations that takes JsonMethod argument.

public enum PropertyAccessor
Getters are methods used to get a POJO field value for serialization, or, under certain conditions also for de-serialization. Latter can be used for effectively setting Collection or Map values in absence of setters, iff returned value is not a copy but actual value of the logical property.

Since version 1.3, this does NOT include "is getters" (methods that return boolean and named 'isXxx' for property 'xxx'); instead, IS_GETTER is used}.


Setters are methods used to set a POJO value for deserialization.

Creators are constructors and (static) factory methods used to construct POJO instances for deserialization

Field refers to fields of regular Java objects. Although they are not really methods, addition of optional field-discovery in version 1.1 meant that there was need to enable/disable their auto-detection, and this is the place to add it in.

"Is getters" are getter-like methods that are named "isXxx" (instead of "getXxx" for getters) and return boolean value (either primitive, or java.lang.Boolean).

This pseudo-type indicates that none of accessors if affected.

This pseudo-type indicates that all accessors are affected.
